Rend Collective - Counting Every Blessing




찬송하리로다 하나님 곧 우리 주 예수 그리스도의 아버지께서 그리스도 안에서 하늘에 속한 모든 신령한 복을 우리에게 주시되 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. (에베소서 Ephesians 1:3)


내가 여호와를 찬송하리니 이는 나를 후대하심이로다 I will sing to the LORD, for he has been good to me. (시편 Psalm 13:6)


Rend Collective ▶ 북 아일랜드의 포크락 밴드로 Organic [유기농의], Homemade [집에서 작업하는] 워십 밴드로 불리기도 하는데요, 이들의 팀 이름은 다음 성경 말씀에서 착안했다고 하는 군요. 


※ 너희는 옷을 찢지 말고 마음을 찢고 너희 하나님 여호와께로 돌아올지어다 그는 은혜로우시며 자비로우시며 노하기를 더디하시며 인애가 크시사 뜻을 돌이켜 재앙을 내리지 아니하시나니 Rend your heart and not your garments. Return to the LORD your God, for he is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love, and he relents from sending calamity. (요엘 Joel 2:13)


Gareth Gilkeson (band leader, percussion, flute), Chris Llewellyn (lead vocals, acoustic guitar, ukelele), Ali Gilkeson (keyboards, female lead/backing vocals, auxiliary percussion), Patrick Thompson (electric guitar, banjo, various strings, backing vocals), Stephen Mitchell (bass guitar) 멤버들의 악기 구성만 보더라도 매우 다채롭고 풍성한 느낌이 드는데요, 이들의 첫 밴드 이름은 ' Rend Collective Experiment' ~ 공동체로서 꾸밈없는 실험적인 느낌의 음악들을 보여 주곤 합니다. 


I was blind, now I'm seeing in colour I was dead, now I’m living forever ; I had failed, but You were my Redeemer I’ve been blessed beyond all measure


I was lost, now I’m found by the Father I’ve been changed from a ruin to treasure ; I’ve been given a hope and a future I’ve been blessed beyond all measure


I am counting every blessing Counting every blessing Letting go and trusting When I cannot see ; I am counting every blessing Counting every blessing Surely every season You are good to me ; Oh You are good to me Oh You are good to me


You were there in the valley of shadows You were there in the depth of my sorrows ; You're my strength, my hope for tomorrow I’ve been blessed beyond all measure


I am counting every blessing Counting every blessing Letting go and trusting When I cannot see ; I am counting every blessing Counting every blessing Surely every season You are good to me ; Oh You are good to me Oh You are good to me


Surely Your goodness pursues me Surely Your heart is still for me ; I will remember Your mercies All my days Through every storm and gale


I am counting every blessing Counting every blessing Letting go and trusting When I cannot see ; I am counting every blessing Counting every blessing Surely every season You are good to me good to me ; I am counting every blessing Counting every blessing Letting go and trusting When I cannot see ; I am counting every blessing Counting every blessing Surely every season You are good to me ; Oh You are good to me Oh You are good to me Oh You are good to me Oh You are good to me
